Sweden Brazil Startup Week
The Sweden Brazil Startup Week which originally was planned to take place in Brazil in March have been postponed to September due COVID-19. It is a part of the Sweden Brazil Innovation Initiative (SBII).
Over the months leading up to the event, Swedish startups and a select group of Brazilian corporations will participate in an online matchmaking. This virtual approach intents to improve the later-on planned personal meeting that is supposed to take place in September.
During the Sweden Brazil Startup Week, CISB and Team Sweden will promote a series of activities for Swedish startups to optimize their stay in Brazil. Participants will have the opportunity to perform quality networking with a significant amount of companies and entities from a broad spectrum of different industries. It will also be an opportunity to get to know the Brazilian innovation system, the country’s business culture, and the legal environment.
The Sweden team is the name given to the set of organizations of permitted use in promoting Sweden and exchanging fruit with other countries. In Brazil, Team Sweden consists of the Embassy of Sweden, Business Sweden, Swedcham Brasil, Swedish-Brazilian Research and Innovation Centre (CISB) and Consulates.
